Mission of LMCPC - "to reach out to the community with the love of Jesus Christ!"


Lower March Creek Presbyterian Church will be hosting C.A.R.E.S. from April 1-14, 2019. C.A.R.E.S. is the Combined Area Resources for Emergency Shelter. This group provides safe overnight shelter for the homeless in Gettysburg. Guests arrive at our church around 8:30 p.m. and leave the next morning between 6:30 - 6:45 a.m. We need the following volunteers:  HOSTS to greet the guests, make sure they sign in, serve them a hot beverage, provide devotion services for interested guests, and show them the church facilities, before locking the doors at 8:45 p.m. (approximately, a one hour commitment). [HOSTS are Not to be confused with Overnight Volunteers, who are provided by the local parishes.]  DRIVERS to pick up and transport the guests from St. James Lutheran Church on York St at 8:15 p.m. to LMCPC, and then pick them up at LMCPC between 6:30-6:45 a.m. the next morning and transport them to the Gettysburg Soup Kitchen for breakfast. Please contact Joe or Elaine Reichl to volunteer your services as a HOST / DRIVER. Phone: 717-398-2430, or jereichl@comcast.net (email is preferable!). We would like to hear from you by March 19, 2019 at the latest. We will be in contact with each of the volunteers sometime in mid-March to coordinate your service. Thank you for your interest in this worthwhile ministry. REMINDER: Only volunteers who have taken the C.A.R.E.S. Training course are eligible to volunteer for these services. If you have not yet done so, please feel free to attend one of the two following Training courses to be held at St. James Lutheran Church in Gettysburg - Monday, February 25, 6:30 p.m., or Monday, March 18, 6:30 p.m.
